I am a big Zope user who also files occational bug reports and
patches. However, I cannot fix bugs in Zope directly (due
to excessive demands with respect to patents, I am not willing
to sign the contributors agreement).
I am not very concerned about unresolved bugs because:
* Zope is open source. I can fix any bug which seriously hampers
my work -- not in the public Zope sources but in our sources of
To keep upgrades possible despite local modifications,
we maintain Zope in a source code control system (CVS currently).
* I am a pragmatist. When I know there is a problem and
I know how to avoid it, I just avoid it.
Especially, I am no longer concerned with bugs in
Zope's indexes since I have "ManagableIndex".
I believe "ManagableIndex" it is more flexible, more efficient
and has less bugs than the stock Zope indexes.

The keyword index bug is far less serious than a bug in the brake
system of a car. I think, I wrote about 5 times "a long standing bug"
in the last two to three years. There are apparently not that many people
concerned about this bug.

You tell them that you can fix serious problems yourself because Zope
is open source -- if there is not already a fix around
(I told you that "Managable KeywordIndex" does not have this problem).
